Blind Man Set New Record for Downhill Skiing.

Kevin "Cannonball" Alderton, 34, a former soldier who lost his sight when he was attacked in the street, has set a new world record for downhill speed skiing: 100.94 mph!

He was guided on the slope via radio speakers in his helmet.

Afterwards he said: "I feel absolutely amazing. It shows disability is no barrier to achievement."

Mr Alderton had his eyes gouged when he tried to stop a gang attacking a woman.
